Phobias- Melanie Green

Melanie Green –   Quals: B. Psych (Hons); Cert in Comm Services; AMAPS – Provisional Psychologist.

Phobias: Fear about certain object, situations or animals is a natural response to situations that can pose a threat to our safety. However, a phobia is different from fear for a number of reasons. First, there is an intense fear about an object, situation or animal. Second, there is an avoidance of the feared situation or it is tolerated with great difficulty and finally there is a conflict between the awareness that their fears are exaggerated or irrational and belief that the situation is not safe. The impact of a phobia can vary from annoying and inconvenient to severely disabling and can interfere with a person’s work, school and relationships.

Counselling approach: Melanie is passionate about helping clients to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. She utilises Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques such as education, relaxation training, cognitive restructuring and exposure therapy to help clients change the unhelpful thoughts and behaviours contributing to their phobia.
